Windows 7 Migration Status Check with Windows 10 1903 Release

I want to discuss the process of performing a Windows 7 Migration Status Check with the latest Windows 10 1903 Release. Microsoft has recently launched the latest version of the Windows 10 operating system, which is the eighth (8th) version of the Windows 10 series.

Let’s talk about how we can utilize this release to check the migration status of Windows 7 to Windows 10.

What are we doing with Windows 7 devices? This post provides more details about the Windows 7 migration status. According to the latest status (28th June 2019) from Net-Market-Share data, the number of Windows 7 devices is decreasing.

However, Windows 10 cannot overtake Windows 7 in terms of the total number of shares. The difference is only 0.03%.

  • Windows 10 – 44.60%

What are the some Differences between Windows 7 and Windows 10?

There are many differences between Windows 7 and Windows 10. some of them are given below.

Windows 10 synchronises the operating system across all devices, including PCs, laptops, tablets, phones, and Xboxs. On the other hand, Windows 7 is only supported on PCs and laptops. Additionally, it’s important to note that Windows 10 is available for free.

Windows 10 comes with a faster, more streamlined browser called Microsoft Edge, which replaces Internet Explorer 8 that came with Windows 7. Microsoft has discontinued support for Internet Explorer.

There are some differences between the search functionality in Windows 7 and Windows 10. In Windows 7, the search feature enables users to look through the files and applications available on their computer. On the other hand, Windows 10’s search feature can do this, too, but it also offers an additional feature that allows users to search the web and the Windows Store directly.

Windows 10 is More Popular

Windows 10 is more popular than Windows 7. Microsoft recently announced that the number of Windows 10 devices count reached 800 Million. Do you know what the problem with all this data is?

There is no segregation of corporate devices and personal devices in these Windows 7 and Windows 10 numbers. I would be interested to know and learn how many corporate devices are still running with Windows 7?

Windows 10 Enterprise Impact

I have seen many organizations where Windows 7 migration is started, but it will be completed by the end of 2020 or later. So, I think most organizations will purchase Microsoft Windows 7 extended support after 14th January 2020.

The following survey questions will give you more details about Windows 7 Migration Status.

  • How many organizations are expected to run Windows 7 after the End of Support on 14th Jan 2020?
  • How many organizations have not completed their Windows 10 migrations?
  • How many organizations expect to take over a year to migrate to Windows 10?
  • How many organizations say IT staff is stretched to complete Windows 10 Migration?

One of the interesting results of the above Windows 10 enterprise impact survey is that 86% of the organizations have NOT completed the Windows 10 migration.
